    Sodertalje 6 @ Rogle 2
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%
    Kval till Elitserien totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    Ex-Kings prospect Yanick Lehoux had 1 goal and 1 assist in Sodertalje's 6-2 spanking of Rogle in their 3rd game of the Kvall til Elitserien. Lightning prospect Riku Helenius has yet to appear in the promotion/relegation round, which is quickly shaping up to be a race of 3 teams vying for 2 spots in Sweden's top league next season. Vaxjo currently sits in 1st on the table 1 point up on Sodertalje and 2 points up on MODO. MODO and Vaxjo will play in the next round of matches, so Sodertalje should be able to make some headway on one of the clubs if they can defeat 5th place Orebro.

Guelph is still in seventh in the West, though eighth place London is two points behind with a game in hand. The eighth place finisher meets top-seeded Owen Sound in the first round. Zador was back on the bench for Owen Sound after starting two games this week and winning them both. Schemitsch is expected back for the Attack’s playoff opener.

    WHL

    Chilliwack Bruins 1 @ Tri-City Americans 5
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM (cross-checking)
    With Tri-City: 31 GP, 16-26-42, +8, 62 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 32-37-69, -4, 106 PIM

    Ashton now has 15 points (7 goals) in March (9 games).

    Prince George Cougars 3 @ Kamloops Blazers 2
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 58 GP, 45-25-70, -4, 26 PIM

    Connolly (pictured) scored twice in the first period to spark Prince George to a 2-0 lead, but Kamloops fought their way back to tie the game and send it to overtime. Connolly failed to convert his shootout attempt. With the win, the Cougars eliminated Kamloops from playoff contention. PG is still hanging on to the eighth spot in the West.

    Seattle Thunderbirds 0 @ Spokane Chiefs 5
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 69 GP, 51-60-111, +26, 48 PIM

    Johnson went scoreless for the second straight game, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but he’s trying to catch Medicine Hat’s Linden Vey for the league scoring title. Vey leads by three points. Spokane put up 34 shots on Seattle a game after they peppered Chilliwack goaltender Lucas Gore with 78 shots. Only one went in as the Chiefs beat the Bruins 2-1 in a shootout. Johnson earned three awards, including the Chiefs Player of the Year honor, in a pre-game ceremony on Friday night on the Chiefs Coca-Cola Regular Season Finale. Johnson was named the Chiefs Player of the Year in a pre-game ceremony, and also given the team's Humanitarian of the Year award for the third straight season and the Ken Rabel Most Sportsmanlike Player of the Year.

    Saskatoon Blades 3 @ Regina Pats 2 (OT)
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 71 GP, 3-21-24, +39, 133 PIM

    Zahn earned the only assist on Brayden Schenn’s overtime winner for Saskatoon. Though Zahn has 133 penalty minutes on the year, he has only two in his last 11 games. The captain will need to stay out of the box in what looks to be a long Saskatoon playoff run.

    Florida Everblades 3 @ Gwinnett Gladiators 2
    LW Alex Hutchings: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG

Norfolk starter Dustin Tokarski is listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. Janus backed up Cedrick Desjardins Friday night for the Admirals.

    CCHA Tournament
    Semifinals

    Detroit, MI

    D Luke Witkowski, UWM: 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 39 GP, 1-7-8, +16, 52 PIM

    Western Michigan avenged two regular season losses to Michigan and moved into the finals of the CCHA Tournament. The Broncos jumped out to a 3-0 lead early into the second period and held on to knock out the tournament No. 1 seed Wolverines.

    The Broncos now face No. 3 seed Miami in the tournament final Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. The Broncos have not been in the finals of the CCHA tournament since 1986. Western was 1-2-1 against the Redhawks during the regular season. Miami beat Notre Dame 6-2 to reach the finals.

    ECAC Tournament
    Semifinals

    Atlantic City, NJ

    #20 Cornell Big Red 3 vs. #15 Dartmouth Big Green 0

    Season totals: 33 GP, 1-6-7, +9, 32 PIM

    Return of The Entertainer.

    ALB-1
    NOR-4

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 1 goal on 23 shots for the win in his first game back from injury. Desjardins has been on the shelf since a January 16th tilt in Charlotte, and returns not a moment too soon with Dustin Tokarski day to day with an undisclosed injury.

    First Period
    NOR Marks, (4) (Angelidis, Berry), 6:08
    NOR Wright, (16) (Pouliot, Fornataro), 8:38

    Second Period
    ALB Henrique, (23) (Sestito, Magnan), 1:05 (SH)
    NOR Fornataro, (17) (Pouliot, Vernace), 6:53 (PP)

    Third Period
    NOR Giliati, (7) (Szczechura, Desjardins), 19:19 (EN)

    Matt Fornataro, Marc-Antoine Pouliot, and Desjardins were the game's three stars.

    Unfortunately, the win didn't net any gains in the standings as Norfolk tries to track down Charlotte and Hershey for 3rd and 2nd place in the East Division, respectively. Both teams won tonight, leaving Norfolk 1 point back of Charlotte with 2 games in hand and 7 points back of Hershey with 3 games in hand. Norfolk did gain 2 points on 5th place Binghamton and now hold a 7 point edge on the Senators with 1 game in hand. In the crossover, Norfolk holds a 9 point edge on Worcester with 1 game in hand.

    The Admirals are now just a few points shy of the roughly 88-90 points they'll likely need to secure a playoff spot, as they now have 83 points with 13 games left in the regular season. Norfolk had 84 points at the end of last season, finishing just 2 points behind Bridgeport, which earned the final playoff spot in the East Division via the crossover rule. A win tomorrow night against Albany will help the club match its point total from all of last year. Norfolk has improved its point total in each subsequent season of its affiliation with the Lightning, which began in 2007-2008.

    I'm still recovering from the mild heart attack I just had when Roloson was down after taking a slapshot off the collar bone.

    TB-2
    MTL-3 (SO)

    Dwayne Roloson allowed 2 goals on 29 shots before allowing 2 of 4 shooters to convert for the shootout loss. And, every Lightning fan saw the season flash before their eyes when Scott Gomez pinged a slapshot off his collarbone and he went down like a ton of bricks. I'm very glad Roloson finished out the game, and I hope a bruise is the only takeaway from that play.

    Shootout
    TB- Gagne
    MTL- Dawes, Cammalleri

    Wow, nice homerism with three Montreal players being named stars in a game where the Lightning dominated the play to the tune of a 37-29 shot advantage. Montreal was very lucky to get to the shootout with the amount of chances that the Lightning were generating. It was a much stronger performance relative to the last outing against the Habs, which is understandable given how many regulars were hurt for Montreal. I thought Price stole the 2 points, frankly, and did so often by the skin of his teeth.

    There are 11 games left in the regular season. Tampa Bay is 4 points back of Washington with 1 game in hand and a trailing by 2 in the ROW column tiebreaker. The Lightning now have 5 straight games against teams that would miss the playoffs if the season ended today. This is where the club has to make its move, and it can put division rival Carolina out of its misery in the process.

    Mattias Ritola had 1 blocked shot in 13:14.

    Kval till Elitserien
    Mora 1 @ Sodertalje 6
    Riku Helenius, Sodertalje, DNP
    Season totals: 18 GP, 4-11-0, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, .884 sv%
    Kval till Elitserien totals: 0 GP, 0-0-0, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

    Ex-St. Cloud State forward Ryan Lasch had 1 goal and 1 assist to lead Sodertalje to a 6-1 blunt force pounding of Mora in their second game of the Kval till Elitserien. Sodertalje now sits in 2nd on the Kval till Elitserien table, 1 point back of Allsvenskan team Vaxjo and 1 point ahead of fellow Elitserien team MODO. 8 games remain in the promotion/relegation season.

    KHL Eastern Conference Semifinals
    (2)Kazan 0 @ (3)Ufa 1
    Ufa Wins the Series 4-1
    Dmitri Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 44 GP, 2-5-7, +5, 32 PIM
    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM

    Happy trails to defending Gagarin Cup champions Ak Bars Kazan. Ex-Kings goalie Erik Ersberg made 27 saves for a 1-0, Game Five shutout win for Ufa to seal the series win. Ex-Predators first rounder Alexander Radulov had Ufa's only goal. Dmitri Kazionov was scoreless in 13:36 in the match.

    That brings to a conclusion the Lightning prospect season in Russia. Yaroslavl and Ufa have already clinched spots in their respective conferences, while St. Petersburg has a 3-2 series lead over Mytischi and former Lightning netminder Karri Ramo's Omsk club holds a 3-2 series lead over Magnitogorsk.

    OHL

    Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Guelph Storm 4
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: Did not play (injured – sprained ankle)
    With Guelph: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -6, 34 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 49 GP, 26-29-55, -6, 67 PIM

    Panik remains out with a sprained ankle. He is reportedly skating and recently returned home to Slovakia to take a high school equivalency exam. At 73 points and in seventh in the West, Guelph could still technically catch Plymouth (76) for sixth or be caught by London (69) and fall to eighth. London has a game in hand. Guelph will likely play Saginaw in the first round.

    Plymouth Whalers 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 4 (OT)
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Win, 30 saves on 33 shots
    With Attack: 13 GP, 9-2-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .900 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador (pictured) earned a second straight start for his First Star effort against London and won again, this time beating Plymouth in overtime. Zador, who is approaching 20 wins on the season, will likely see more time in net as Owen Sound has already clinched the West’s top seed. They’ll likely play London in the first round. Schemitsch is expected back for the playoffs.

    WHL

    Everett Silvertips 2 @ Tri-City Americans 1
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM (goaltender interference, tripping)
    With Tri-City: 30 GP, 15-26-41, +8, 60 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 31-37-68, -4, 104 PIM

    Ashton has 14 points (6 goals) in March. He has 17 PIM in his last four games. TC is basically locked in as the West’s 4-seed. They’ll likely play either Chilliwack or Vancouver.

    Chilliwack Bruins 1 @ Spokane Chiefs 2 (SO)
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (high sticking, hooking)
    Season Totals: 68 GP, 51-60-111, +26, 48 PIM

    Johnson didn’t find the scoresheet in regulation or overtime Wednesday, but scored in the shootout to help the Chiefs defeat Chilliwack. The Chiefs, who will be the 3-seed in the West, will likely play Vancouver or Chilliwack in the first round.

    Moose Jaw Warriors 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 3 (SO)
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 70 GP, 3-20-23, +38, 133 PIM

    Saskatoon, who has already clinched the league’s best record, won the shootout 2-0. Zahn has been at least plus-1 in his last six games. He is plus-16 in that span.

    KHL Western Conference Semifinals
    (1)Yaroslavl 5 @ (7)Dynamo Riga 4 (OT)
    Yaroslavl Wins the Series 4-1
    Martins Karsums, Dynamo Riga, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 52 GP, 17-15-32, -3, 46 PIM
    Playoff totals: 11 GP, 1-2-3, -1, 8 PIM

    Alexander Kalyanin scored 5:09 into overtime to life Lokomotiv to a 5-4 victory and eliminate Riga in Game Five of their semifinal series. Ex-NHLer Pavol Demitra had a goal in the match for Yaroslavl. Martins Karsums was scoreless in 17:30 of ice time.

    With Karsums' club season over, he'll await a spot on Latvia's World Championships team.
